OH we only got ours in late 13 and they told me it started in Canada in 12. Now what are the odds of a Scion dealer telling you wrong info anyways?

Mine will have to take down the 3 foot banner out of the Toyota show room window. All done.

I would love to know how many they actually MADE for each of those years though. Could be they only made half as many and sold them all in which case the sales were pretty good.

I'm curious what will happen with parts. Like if someone wrecks a Scion and needs a badge replacement if they will use up stock of Scion badges to re-badge it if its one of the models that was brought to Toyota.
I can run out right now and buy new original stock badges for a 1958 Edsel so I don't think that will be a huge issue for a long time.

Yup, it also didn't help that the 2nd gen xB and tC looked worst than their predecessor.

I have mixed feelings on this. I knew Scion was on the downturn as a brand, but I feel like they could have actually put effort into it a few years ago when the FR-S came around, but they didn't. So yes, it was time to move on.

I'm still happy with my Scion badges. I have a feeling some of the crowd that rebadged may be switching back now just to be different again
